Everybody needs a reading list. And here’s one for you. We’ll update it as we come across must-read material.
- The Clean Tech Revolution — An excellent place to start to get a better understanding of clean, green technology.
- Technology, Humans, and Society:: Toward a Sustainable World — Richard Dorf provides a clear bridge between the use of technology in business and long-term human survival, without being melodramatic.
- Green Gadgets For Dummies — Go get Joe Hutsko’s book. It’s good. And not just because he mentions fellow Chief Advocate Steven Castle. No, really.
- Citizen Engineer: A Handbook for Socially Responsible Engineering — David Douglas and Greg Papadopoulos helps engineers look beyond design to the ecological, business, and social impact of what they create. Tip of the hat to Linux Journal for drawing my attention to this one.
